Many Ways to Celebrate St. Nicholas
Shoes or stockings? Horse or sleigh? Does St. Nicholas visit on December 6 or on Christmas Eve? Will a little girl’s prayer be answered? When Elizabeth has to stay at Catherine’s house, she’s worried about her grandmother, and worried that St. Nicholas won’t find her. The grownups, though, are worried about snow.
Learn about St. Nicholas with stories and other resources.

A Celebration of Easter in the Orthodox Church
Finalist in the 2015 USA Best Book Awards

Catherine doesn’t like vegetables. She doesn’t like naps. She doesn’t like it when her mom combs her hair. She loves hot dogs, chocolate cake, and her best friend, Elizabeth.

Catherine’s Pascha is available on Amazon or in our webstore.
